MetaCyc Pathways Class: Fatty Acid Derivatives Biosynthesis

This class contains pathways of the biosynthesis of compounds derived from or composed of fatty acids such as triglycerides and cholesteryl esters. These compounds are involved in a wide range of functions including transport and storage of fatty acids, as well as hormonal regulation.

Parent Classes:
Secondary Metabolites Biosynthesis

Child Classes:
